"It is common to see therapy as a journey to discover the Self. We have familiar maps, or patterns, which can lead to unhappiness or self-sabotaging behavior. You may find yourself stranded in all-too-familiar territory with little idea of how to move on. Like many journeys, it can be an exciting adventure but can also be full of unknowns. I see my role as your guide, to blaze new “routes” together that have worked well for others. As Helen Keller once said: “What I am looking for is not out there, it is in me.” I truly believe the exquisite joy you find by falling in love with yourself is a journey you don’t want to miss!"

If you are struggling adapting to a new diagnosis of diabetes, or with the rigors of long-standing diabetes self-management, you are not alone. Diabetes distress and burnout have been well-defined and are treatable. If you love someone with diabetes, and you find it difficult to manage your anxiety or have burnout yourself, please consider psychotherapy.

"Life without struggle would be pretty boring, but too much can keep people from experiencing the life they want. My entire career has been focused helping adolescents, families, and adults understand patterns that get in the way of joy and connection. We come to believe that those patterns are who we are. But they are not. They are just how our childhoods, traumas, and experiences have shaped us. It's not easy reshaping how we think about ourselves and others. Meaningful therapy is hard. I don't do therapy to teach new skills. I want my clients to heal in ways that reshape how they see themselves and the world. "
